Mexican Chiapas Org. Altura – Grapos

First New Crop Chiapas! 
Great from medium to dark roasts. The cup is full bodied and lower acidity mainly nutty and chocolate like tones with just a hint of lemon/floral crispness upfront. A wonderful example of darker toned, thicker Mexican coffee. Medium roasts are sweet, smooth, more nutty than chocolaty, while darker roasts are strong with semi-sweet cocoa notes. These beans do work at light roasts, accentuating the citric and floral tones but will produce a little thinner cup more on the dry nutty side.

Description

This particular lot comes from 6 small farms in the municipalities of Union Juarez and Cacahotán, both on the Mexico/Guatemala border near Volcan Tacaná. Farmers in this area typically cultivate coffee on just a few acres using organic farm management practices.

During the harvest, each producer follows a strict protocol which includes picking cherries at optimum ripeness, hand sorting, floating to remove damaged and undeveloped beans, depulping and fermenting before washing and drying the coffee on patios or raised beds to 11%.

Dried coffee is transported to the nearest warehouse and then to a central dry mill facility where coffee is received, cupped and selected for export. Grapos preparation ensures traceability and quality control throughout the post harvest process, which is a vital resource for establishing higher prices for producers.

Tasting Notes:
Great from medium to dark roasts. The cup is full bodied and lower acidity mainly nutty and chocolate like tones with just a hint of lemon/floral crispness upfront. A wonderful example of darker toned, thicker Mexican coffee. Medium roasts are sweet, smooth, more nutty than chocolaty, while darker roasts are strong with semi-sweet cocoa notes. These beans do work at light roasts, accentuating the citric and floral tones but will produce a little thinner cup more on the dry nutty side.

Roasting Notes: An easy coffee to roast. Medium chaff, nice screen and even roasting. A little longer setup helps smooth out a bit of acidity if you roast it a bit too light for your preference.
